1969 Minnesota Vikings National Football Championship Ring
1969 was the ninth year of season play for the Minnesota Vikings and the 50th regular season of the National Football League. The Vikings again won the Central Division title, as finished with a record of 12 wins and two losses, plus playoff wins over the Los Angeles Rams in the Western Conference Championship Game, as well as the Cleveland Browns in the last Championship Game ever played in the pre-merger era, before losing the Super Bowl to the AFL champion Kansas City Chiefs in the final professional football game played between any two teams before the two leagues merged.
The Vikings are the last team to win the Championship prior to the league’s merger with the American Football League. The season was chronicled for America’s Game: The Missing Rings, as one of the five greatest teams to never win the Super Bowl.
